In the northeastern Italian countryside, 19-year-old Giacomo, who is deaf, and his childhood friend Stefania fill their summer days with games, conversation, and swims in the local river. Time passes slowly in this languid, sensual atmosphere, but soon another reality—and the collision of documentary and fiction—brings an unexpected meaning to their bittersweet adventures.
